      Live Nation has announced that Canadian singer-songwriter Sarah Slean will perform an all-ages show at the Rio Theatre on Wednesday, March 6, 2013, in support of the Sea half of her critically acclaimed double disc Land & Sea.

      Slean--along with a string quintet, Karen Kosowski on back-up vocals, and Mark Mariash on drums/orchestral percussion--will perform most of her songs that feature strings, including the arrangements found on Sea , plus old favourites.

      “We'll be performing the original orchestral arrangements as faithfully as possible, traveling with a core group and supplementing with some of the finest classical string players in Canada from every city," says Slean. "We aim to bring pretense-free artistry, dazzling skill and depth to the concert experience--aren't you tired of pop culture insulting your intelligence? I am. It will truly be an un-categorizable, one-of-a-kind adventure, and I couldn't be more excited."

      Tickets for the show are priced at $30 (plus service charges and fees) and go on sale this Friday (November 2) at 10 a.m. on the Live Nation website.

      Tickets are also available for purchase by phone at 1-855-985-5000, and at all Ticketmaster Outlets and Rogers Wireless Box Office.
